Sampling of SUGGESTED ITINERARIES

  • Learn about Detroit's role in the Underground Railroad as part of our African American tour. Because of our strong African American heritage, The D was designated the first authenticated African American Heritage Destination in the world by the Travel Professionals of Color. This suggested itinerary includes a stop at the Motown Historical Museum — Hitsville USA to listen to the original sounds of Motown and see where it all began.
  • We designed a special Family Friendly tour with many ideas for adults and kids to enjoy The D.
  • For all things automotive take our Gear Heads tour to discover why we are still the Motor City. 

No matter passion or interest, we can assist you in customizing the perfect itinerary to meet your needs in the D. View more sample tour itineraries.
